And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, “Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent, for I am with you, and no one will attack you to harm you, for I have many in this city who are my people. (Acts 18:9-10)
Westminster Presbyterian Church in Bryan, Texas opened its doors in 1978. Through its years of existence, God has blessed that congregation with growth and a singular vision: to plant a church in its sister city, College Station.
While the city of Bryan has no lack of churches within its geographical bounds, College Station has a startling lack of churches in its southern area and especially south of Rock Prairie Road. Because the city is geographically expanding to the south, more and more families are moving into our area. Demographically, we need to be planting churches here to serve them.
But it would be short-sighted to focus only on the demographics of a region when we must also consider the spiritual battle for the souls of people. From the unchurched to the de-churched, we know that the people in College Station desperately need gospel presence. God has people who belong in our midst, and we don’t even know who they are yet. That is why we are here. God has a big heart for College Station.
